Redskins-Bears Predictions


As ever, these are our crackerjack staff’s predictions for Week 14. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest gets to make a guest post on this here weblog.

Todd Davis: Redskins, 22-21

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I honestly think this team has gotten to the point where it’s underrated and definitely better than its record. They give us one more week at least.

Matt Terl: Bears, 28-16

They lose a close one this week and then pack it in to coast to the end of another miserable season.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 24-22

After last week it’s hard to imagine they win again this season. But this team rarely does what’s expected (like last week), and might actually respond. I think the offense looks different this week, and the Bears D wont know the Skins scheme as well as Dallas did. Alshon Jeffery will probably have a monster game, though. They haven’t won on the road, but they also haven’t lost two in a row since Week 6.

Andy Peden: Bears, 23-19

Season ends in failure. Finish up at 6-10 while the Eagles win the division at 8-8.

Chris Mottram: Bears, 24-16

This is it. This is the one. The Falcons are in a free fall, but are still in the Wild Card hunt with a ton to play for. It’s a rivalry game, the Panthers have already locked up the division, and Atlanta is capable of being a great team, as we saw earlier in the season. Carolina loses, but who cares, keep pounding.

Jack Kogod: Bears, 27-20

Daaaaa Bears! You know, like the old skit? Yeah, love me some Bears football.

Jamie Mottram: Bears, 24-16

Whatever. Let’s go back to a happier time in Skins-Bears lore.

Composite prediction: Bears, 24-19

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Skins 34 – Bears 28

    They’ve won every “Must-Win” game this year, this game falls in that category.

    Bears 24-13.

    I agree that the Redskins are a bit underrated (hate those chuckles how it is us “leading” the division). We haven’t won on the road this season and only one (Atlanta) were really in it at the end. Granted, all five games were against teams in postseason contention.

    I’m going with the fact that the Bears pass defense has been damn good the last month or so and I have a hunch Bad Cousins shows up.

    I can see the rest of the division losing as well and us being 5-8 on top the East.

    Wait- what happened? Most of us gave up hope again and they won? Keep the negativity up next week, comrades- it’s our only hope.

    Funny how people can say it is WRONG that the Redskins could win the bad NFC East and steal a postseason spot from another, more deserving team. Who?

    The Seahawks and Vikings are 8-5 and holding the two wildcard spots. After that? A bunch of 6-7 teams (Eagles, Bucs, Falcons) like our Redskins.
